ti Throw whatever happens to be in the fridge, (parsley, dried cranberries, pine nuts and crumbled goat cheese this time), and you’ll have a healthy and filling meal in mere minutes. Wild rice with chicken or vegetable stock and a pat or two of butter really makes a world of difference.
This salad can be made with any grain, try it with quinoa, brown rice, farro, etc. There are no rules for this salad – here’s your chance to get creative and clean out that fridge all at the same time. Enjoy!
